The Late Show with... Stephen Colbert

A smart decision by CBS, and a great opportunity for Colbert. That said, I'll miss THE COLBERT REPORT.

 

My first thought as well. Something doesn't feel right. Comedy Central has always felt like the right place for Colbert's strengths. I'd hate to see him give up the persona.

P.S.  I COULD BE WRONG.

 

Takin' 'er easy for all you sinners at lookingcloser.org. Also abiding at Facebook and Twitter.

I love Colbert, and don't in any way mean to cast doubt on his talent or his appeal, but: My initial thought is that the NBC folks (and Team Fallon) probably aren't too concerned about this.

 

That said: The friendship between Colbert and Fallon could lead to some fun cross-network gags and interactions.

So, the whole #CancelColbert movement sort-of won, then?

I posted a few thoughts.

"I would never be dismissive of pop entertainment; it's much too serious a matter for that." -- NBooth

"If apologetics could prove God, I would lose all faith in Him." -- Josie

"What if--just what if--the very act of storytelling is itself redemptive? What if gathering up the scraps and fragments of a disordered life and binding them between the pages of a book in all of their fragmentary disorder is itself a gambit against that disorder?" -- NBooth

I'll take it as a compliment beating the AV Club to this conclusion:

 

 

Colbert will also become part of a newer tradition—the modern phenomenon of TV performers succeeding downward.

Craig Ferguson is leaving the Late Late Show at the end of the year.

 

 

“CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are ‘consciously uncoupling,’ but we will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much,” Ferguson said.

 

The story says a possible replacement is Neil Patrick Harris.

It's the side effects that save us.
